Love Story Bridal, Troy, NY

A few years ago downtown Albany was permanently changed for the better with the arrival of Angela’s Bridal. I remember seeing the space for the first time and was completely enamored with their vision and execution of the new space. You may remember that I found my wedding dress there back in 2013!


Fast forward to now, Janet Cooper and her amazing team have come up with a brilliant idea that will, once again, change the bridal landscape of the Capital Region.  I have so many brides contact me looking for new locations and affordable options for finding their wedding gown and I am so excited for this new boutique.

Introducing, A Love Story…located in the heart of downtown Troy, A Love Story is a bridal consignment boutique that has gently worn dresses that are no more than three years old. Most of the dresses are samples or are from cancelled weddings and have never been worn for an actual event.


A Love Story also felt there was a unique opportunity for emerging designers to connect with brides looking for a modern or non-traditional aesthetic and offers special order and made-to-order dresses.

I’m really excited about A Love Story because everything in the store is priced around or under $2,500! For brides who are looking for a deal on a designer gown, A Love Story should be on their short list.

If you’re about to embark on your dress hunt, take some time and check out A Love Story located at 188 River St in downtown Troy (not far from KOWE headquarters)–they opened their doors this week! Congratulations and welcome to the neighborhood!  Be sure to follow them on Instagram too- click here!

Keep sparkling–
